BRANDS: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT

What brands are you obsessed with and what sparked your love for them? What is it about that specific brand that makes you come back to buy more or try their new products? Any brands you've been disappointed with? Brands that consistently have products that don't seem to live up to the hype... or that just doesn't work for you. Maybe there's a brand you don't want to buy products from due to poor reviews/image. Any brands you've been wanting to try or any that caught your eye due to packaging or a specific product.

 

Share your stories of brand love and dislike.

One brand that will always hold a special in my heart is MAC. It was the first higher end brand that I purchased from and what started my love and obsession to makeup! I still remember looking at all the beautiful and endless products they offered. What brought me to them was a lip balm I loved. It was a tinted lip balm and I wanted to match that very specific nude beige to a lipstick and couldn’t find it anywhere else. After seeing the range of color they offered I just fell in love. I must admit that I am a bit disappointed in the brand the last few years… it doesn’t feel like it used to and I can’t really put my finger on what makes me feels this way about them.

KVD is another brand that keeps getting my money. I'm loving pretty much everything she is coming out with! Her packaging and all the work she puts into it make it even more special.  I so wish I would have gotten the face chart reward when it was up. Definitely one of my top brands!

I also want to mention The Body Deli.  I keep repurchasing from them. I love their products and have been using their body line for a while now.  Here's more info about them from their site.

Spoiler
THE BODY DELI is the pioneer in fresh, organic, raw superfood enhanced personal care products. Two Cosmetic Chefs, Margaret Skarin Clark and David Anton Parker, created the brand in the resort towns of Palm Desert and Palm Springs, California in 2001. Two "foodies" with an extensive background in nutrition, raw food, wellness and beauty, envisioned a personal care brand so different, fresh and unique that they started making their own healthy skin care products. Their special method is a process similar to crafting fresh juices and smoothies in a high-end Organic Juice Bar. “Fresh Food for the Skin” was their concept, and since then they have evolved a global brand committed and dedicated to providing the absolute purest alternative for nourishing the face, body and hair. Celebrities, fashion designers, Fortune 500 leaders and health conscious people have fallen in love with The Body Deli’s unique, effective and wonderful creations.

I've mentioned these in the thread today but also a big fan of:

Natasha Denona

Viseart

Pat McGrath

Odacite

Omorovicza 

 

Love the eye products from the first 3 brands, the serums from Odacite and a few products from Omorovicza. Probably more but just have a huge memory blank right now Smiley Very Happy

Re: BRANDS: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT

Likes:
Makeup:
Kat Von D - Good eyeshadow, amazing liquid liner, good lip products and concealer. Every one of those things is long-lasting with great pigmentation and applies evenly.

Tarte - My favorite brand for blushes. I love their LipSurgence lip products (even though they're discontinued now), also a fan of their Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara and their brightening face primer. I don't like their eyeshadow, though, and none of their complexion products work for me.

Skincare:
Shu Uemura - I adore all their cleansing oils, and also like their moisturizing emulsion.

Clinique - I like their moisturizer gels, like Thirst Relief and Dramatically Different.

Perfume:
Juliette Has a Gun - I bought their discovery kit and like all but one of their scents.

Dislikes:
Makeup:
Benefit - The whole line seems created for someone with pale, oily skin. Most products seem sheer and drying.

Stila - Maybe it's unfair to say I dislike them, but I'm never enthused by anything they release.

Skincare:
Glamglow - I remember trying one of their masks and it stinging horribly. Tried them again but never had a pleasant experience come of it.

Philosophy - Just been underwhelmed by that brand.

Re: BRANDS: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT

@IciclePop  I've never been a fan of Philosophy too... I guess that would be it... it's underwhelming.

Re: BRANDS: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT

ahh i love threads like these! but choosing favorites can be so hard! 

 

right now i'm loving:

 

Herbivore: i love everything from the line that i've tried, especially the blue tansy mask, rose hibiscus face mist, lapis face oil, coco rose body polish and pineapple mask! i can't freaking wait until i move and have a bathtub again, so i can finally buy the coconut milk bath soak! 

I'm finding myself gravitating more and more to natural beauty products these days, and love when i find brands that perform well too.

 

Make up for ever:  I never really got into MUFE until about a year ago, when i was desperately trying to find a foundation match in the summer time. After trying about 30 different foundations, the SA at sephora finally found me a good match in MUFE. I loved the ultra HD foundation, and since then I have really learned to love the brand! I love the smoky lash mascara, ultra HD concealer, and i think their plexi gloss is one of the best gloss formulas! Their eye shadows are amazing, and very underrated in my opinion!

 

Kat Von D:  ever since i got my first KVD lipstick a few years ago, i've been hooked! I'm so impressed with her dedication to quality, and love that she really tests her products before releasing them to make sure they are perfect! I love most everything the line makes, and i have amassed quite the collection lol. And her color range is always so broad, so no matter what your style is, there's something for you! It's so nice to find a CF brand that offers so many products, which isn't easy. I can't wait to see what she does next! 

 

Colourpop:  aside from the cheeziness sometimes, i really love colourpop! I think they are very fashion forward, and always creating products that fall in line with the current beauty trends. Sometimes they even start new ones! Their highlighters, super shock shadows, and blotted lip are my faves, but i really like everything from the brand. The ultra matte lips definitely need a lip primer, but the other lip products are awesome, and the shade range is amazing. They have super sweet customer service too!

 

MAC: MAC was my first high end brand that  i really experienced, and i will always have a soft spot for them. Their lip liners, lipsticks, blushes and eyeshadows are still some of my favorite products! I really love the new lipglass formula too.

 

I can do without...

 

J*

Kylie Cosmetics

Benefit

Morphe

Smashbox

 

J* and Kylie mainly because of their behavior/terrible customer service/etc, the other brands I just have never been impressed with, and are totally off my radar.

Re: BRANDS: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT

@unfungirl  yeah I love mostly everything KVD makes too. It's really become one of my top fav brands Smiley Happy
